“All you can do in this life is follow your dreams. Otherwise you're just wasting your time.”
David Walliams, Gangsta Granny

“In Britain, a cup of tea is the answer to every problem.
Fallen off your bicycle? Nice cup of tea.
Your house has been destroyed by a meteorite? Nice cup of tea and a biscuit.
Your entire family has been eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex that has travelled through a space/time portal? Nice cup of tea and a piece of cake. Possibly a savoury option would be welcome here too, for example a Scotch egg or a sausage roll.”
David Walliams, Mr Stink

“A bully can only make you feel bad about yourself if you let them.”
David Walliams, Mr Stink
